    http://bigstory.ap.org/article/poll-gop-gets-blame-shutdownThe Associated Press-GfK survey, out Wednesday, affirms expectations by many in Washington — Republicans among them — that the GOP may end up taking the biggest hit in public opinion from the fiscal paralysis, just as that party did when much of the government closed 17 years ago. But the situation is fluid nine days into the shutdown and there's plenty of disdain to go around.

    Overall, 62 percent mainly blamed Republicans for the shutdown. About half said Obama or the Democrats in Congress bear much responsibility.


    Count on the conservatrolls here to continue to be unable to do math and understand which numbers are higher and lower than others.

    Hmmmmm......southbeach/franktats has used a recent ap-gfk survey to substantiate his claim of President Obama's job performance rating freefalling to a much lower number.

    I wonder who is accurate and correct here?

    Conservatives can't process the fact that 37% is much better than 5%.

    Math is hard for Republicans.

    In their defense, the Republican shutdown has been such a debacle for the conservative brand that they have to cling to something, anything to make them feel better about the fact that they have alienated even more voters.

    Who knows the democrat subterfuge may work?

    So far I would say no one is buying it perse and the President likely will relent.

    But what the democrats are asking for is regular order to pass a omnibus bill where there are plenty of appropriation bills passed by the house sitting at Harry Reid's desk.

    Appropriation bills have classical been passed one at time. It doesn't have to be a Omnibus bill.

    And as I said before the ACA act was amended via budge appropriations. ALL OF A SUDDEN democrats would want it to be immune to the budgetary process.

    Time to stop your bleating and put a new cd on your internet juke boxicon_exclaim.gif

    ACA is the "law of the land".

    The Supreme Court has upheld it as legal.

    You and the GOP/TEAbaggers lost on this one.

    Get Over It.
